Academic Success

ATTENDING SRJC IS A SMART EDUCATIONAL AND FINANCIAL DECISION:

SRJC has transfer agreements (TAG) with 4-year universities, making it easy to transfer. Students can complete the first 2 years of a bachelor’s degree at SRJC and get a high-quality education by taking the same courses they would take at a university but at a much lower cost.
A recent study shows students who complete their first two years of a bachelor’s degree at SRJC get better grades than students who complete all four years at a university.
Statistics indicate nearly 80% of SRJC applicants to the University of California system (UC) were accepted, the third highest acceptance rate from California Community College applicants.
Top transfer destinations for SRJC students are: UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UCLA, Sonoma State University and San Francisco State University.
